Infertility

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week.
Here are some links to information:
I recommend this book on infertility


 I will post more if I find things. The most important thing is to be able to listen to your friend, sister, family member, daughter, coworker, etc who desires to have a baby but cannot. Secondary infertility can also affect women who have one or even more children but desire many more and are often frustrated why they were given one child but not more. Some people choose to be childless or have small families and yet many others desire for that first child or subsequent without receiving that gift and that can be a great burden. It can be hard to discern for a couple whether to pursue additional medical treatment, adoption, or other volunteering/life fulfilling efforts to fill the void infertility can cause. It must take honesty, upfront feelings, lots of discussion, prayer, patience, and trust that things will work out as part of the greater plan.

Happy Easter!

 I've taken a few weeks' break from this space, but I hope to be back this week with some updated photos of the garden.
Amen Alleluia Jesus is risen today!
I hope you have a beautiful light-filled day with family and friends celebrating the joy of life!
